Ludacris is not able to pay the amount of child support his baby’s mother, Tamika Fuller, is asking for. And the rapper is claiming it is because of Paul Walker’s untimely passing.

Fuller is asking that the Atlanta rapper pay $15,000 a month to support his 2-month-old daughter, Cai, TMZ reports. But he told the judge he cannot afford to pay that significant amount because he was going to use the money he made from “Fast and Furious 7” to make his payments. Production of the movie, however, has been stalled since Walker’s death. So now Ludacris is saying he is only able to afford $1,800 a month for child support payments, after stating he made just $55,000 last year.

In December, “Fast and Furious” actor Walker was 40 years old when the Porsche Carrera GT in which he was a passenger crashed into a tree and burst into flames.

Roger Rodas, 38, was the driver of the high-performance sports car that crashed around 3:30 p.m. He was Walker’s business partner and a co-owner of the car customization store Always Evolving in Santa Clarita. According to reports, the bodies of both victims were too badly burned for visual identification.

Many celebrities have reacted to Walker’s death on social media since Saturday. His “Fast & Furious” co-star Vin Diesel tweeted, “Brother, I will miss you very much. I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace.”

Walker's other co-star, Tyrese Gibson, wrote, “My heart is hurting so bad no one can make me believe this is real Father God I pray that you send clarity over this cause I just don’t understand My heart hurts it’s broken no one can convince me that this is real…”
